AYD - April 17, 2014 - The Greatness You Become

"The older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world; I am like a snowball - the further I am rolled, the more I gain."
- Susan B. Anthony, 1820 - 1906

Nice and simple for a Thursday.

Think of one of your life's lessons learned.  And then explain the value of that new point of view, to yourself.  You know, it's that old, "If I knew then what I know now .... " question.

How have I grown in my life experience, and how does that growth bring value to my life?

You might learn not only to recognize your growth successes, but also how to appreciate yourself for making the change.

Good Morning, Greater day.
Greater you, comes from the less experienced you before.

AYD - April 15, 2014 - Obviously, I Need the Obvious

"It's a very funny thing about life; if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it."
- William Somerset Maugham

No matter how valuable the message - we often miss it.  Not just one in our lives, many.
As we have stated before, many of life's messages come at us many times, with different words or delivery methods ... but we are not always ready to receive them.

Maybe, it takes the unmistakeable vision of the Lord in your oatmeal before the "AH HA!" is seen and trusted to be a sign.  Maybe, it just takes the obvious statement staring us in the face.  The less than best result right there... speaking volumes.

And then, it just takes listening to the obvious.  Turn up the volume.  Listen for the bass beat.

Sometimes, I need that good old black-and-white, point form, in the shape of a pointy toe shoe to kick me right square in the ....

You get the idea.

"It's a very funny thing about life;  if you refuse to accept anything but the best, you very often get it."

Good morning, Better day.
Greater you, refuses anything less.
